RailsConf Keynotes and Fourth Track

Posted by chad

We’re putting the finishing touches on the RailsConf 2007 schedule this week. Given the huge number of high quality proposals (well over 3 times the number from last year), we’re working on putting together a fourth track.

We have also finalized an exciting lineup of keynote speakers for the conference. I was frankly a bit worried about the keynote lineup as we started initial planning of RailsConf 2007. Last year’s keynotes were going to be hard to live up to. My fears were ill-founded. We ended up with a program to be really excited about.

Tim Bray, Sun, Co-creator of XML and Atom

Avi Bryant, Creator of Seaside and DabbleDB

Ze Frank, Comedic Digital Savant

David Heinemeier Hansson, 37 Signals, Creator of Ruby on Rails

Dave Thomas, The Pragmatic Programmers

The RailsConf program promises to be thought-provoking, trend-starting, entertaining, tone-setting, and, most of all, fun.

See you in May!
